Years ago my parents bought me my lovely chunky pine chest of draws for my clothes, in recent years I have also been using as a dressing table as well ... I have a pretty painted shelf unit on it with photos, pretty jars and a pile of books
The other week I was in the antique market in town and spied this beautiful pine dressing table mirror top ... I had to wait till I was paid on Saturday, and happily it was still there, so I snapped it up :) ... I should probably confess here that it wasn't me ... I was working all day so my parents who happened to be in town that day got sent out with my bank card and bless them, carried it all the way home!! I know I am a very lucky girl!
and guess what ... without me even measuring it ... it fit perfectly!! I gave it a big clean and replaced all my trinkets ... well most of them, and I am so pleased with it ... its PERFECT :)
Yesterday Steve and I went to Ross-on-Wye and came across a carboot ... its been a good few months since I have been to a carboot, and was very pleased to find a box of lace bobbins ...
they need a bit of a sort, but any good box of lace bobbins always does :)
